Q&A: Sauce

sauce, chris eiland photo, bmx, defgrip

If you’re familiar with the Common Crew or any of new generation of BMX kids coming up out of Southern California right now, than Sauce is somebody you’re probably familiar with. If not, I think he can simply be summed up as a young motivated kid from HB who loves filming his friends.

I’m always down to give dudes like Sauce some shine if they land on my radar, so keep reading for a quick Q&A.

Shouts to Eddie Cuellar for the pic.

Q&A: Chris Hallman / Tread Magazine

tread magazine, chris hallman, defgrip,

It’s very possible that many of you reading this have never heard of Tread Magazine, let alone seen one. But during the mid 90’s, this magazine had a very cult-like following and was very sought after (at least to me and people I knew on the East Coast). It was kind of underground, kind of not, tied to the influential Props era and all around just awesome and interesting. I think it would be fair to liken Tread to the Albion for comparison. Tread only lasted 4 issues, but those issues were enough for it to have a lasting effect on riders from that era.

Inspired by a recent Instagram post, I decided to track down Chris Hallman and ask him some questions about the mag. Click below to read it all.

Shoutout to Chris Hallman and a big thanks to Chris Rye for supplying the images.

Q&A: Jon Contino

Honestly, I don’t know what took so long for this Q&A with Jon Contino to happen. Harrison and I both love his stuff, we’ve featured him on here before, so there really is no excuse.

Anyway, Jon Contino is an amazing illustrator based out of New York who specializes in hand lettering. His work looks authentic, unique and has a vintage quality that can’t be faked. I can’t say enough good things about his stuff. Real deal right here.

Q&A: KC Badger is Fly (fishing)

courtesy of the dagger zone

I always tend to be interested in what riders get into outside of BMX (Yes, it is possible to be passionate about more than one thing). KC Badger is a good example of that. If you follow KC on Twitter (or know him personally), than you already know how into fishing he is. I’ve read enough tweets about it that it piqued my interest enough to throw some questions his way. The outcome is pretty personal and gives you a good perspective on where he is coming from.
